A Memorial to all 

By Jessie Conner

to remember is
never to forget
it's a day of love
and quite a bit

Focus on the fallen
and hear them
calling out
to speak their stories
out loud

the people who
fought to keep us alive
every day we
know they tried

some succeed
some failed
we remember them all
to all we hail

hail our love
and heart's to all
to those who fly and
those who fall

Elk Grove didn't have a Memorial Day Celebration?

There was a memorial, yes. The memorial was at the Elk Grove Cosumnes Cemetery (8540 Elk Grove Blvd) at 10am today. BTW, on Memorial Day, we don't "celebrate," we "remember."

Thanks for posting a memorial to our fallen heros. This is one holiday that I don't believe gets the attention it deserves.

Thanks to all that have served. Your bravery and courage are appreciated.

Interesting fact: Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for all who have passed. Veteran's Day is to celebrate those who have served, regardless if they are dead or living.
